Most bios will post a insert system disk type message if a drive fails
so I would rule that out. Did you used to see a grub menu. If so start
with a grub repair. On single OS linux boxes you don't always see
grub, in which case X has dropped the ball. My experience says this is
the most likely. Does ctrl alt F2 produce anything
